Summer… oh how I have a love hate relationship with it. I HATE the super hot humid days, but I love and can not get enough of the cook outs. Just something about a flame grilled burger.. YUM.. Another thing that I love is that my 3 year old loves burgers as much as I do! So, what goes best with burgers? PICKLES!
I do have to say, I’m a pickle freak! 100% hands down, pickles are my thing. With burgers though, I need bread and butter pickles. One thing I can deal without though, is all the crap that comes in store bought, jarred pickles. Have you ever read the ingredients? Yea, no thank you.
So, I decided… Ill make my own! It was sooo easy! Check it out.
1 1/2 lbs mini cucumbers
1 1/2 tbsp kosher salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp celery seeds
1/8 tsp ground tumeric
Slice cucumbers into thing slices.
Combine cucumbers and salt in a bowl and mix until thoroughly coated. Put the cucumbers into a shallow backing dish. Cover and refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours.
Move cucumbers into a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Combine all remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat, stir until sugar is dissolved.
Fill an airtight container with the cucumbers and pour the hot vinegar over the cucumbers. Let stand at room temp for 1 hours. Cover and refrigerate for 1 day.
Enjoy! Will last in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
